3-cent Wisconsin Tercentenary Nicolet's Landing single

The 300th anniversary of French explorer Jean Nicolet's 'discovery' of Wisconsin in 1634 was commemorated by a violet 3-cent stamp issued on July 7, 1934. The stamp design is taken from a painting by Edward W. Deming depicting Nicolet's landing at Green Bay, with numerous Indians in attendance.

The stamp was reissued on March 15, 1935, in imperforate, ungummed sheets of two hundred.
